Telephone Campaign 2019

Monday 18th to Sunday 31st March

The Telephone Campaign is now over for the year, and we would like to say thank you to our callers, for their hard work, and our alumni for their generosity in giving over £222,000 to the Student Support Initiative, with more donations still coming in.

Of course, you can still make your gift through the link above; every gift makes a real difference to the lives of our students, and helps us to continue offering bursaries and support to all at Christ's

Over the Easter vacation, a team of 12 current students will be picking up the phone to call you, in order to learn about your experiences at the College, to inform you about what is going on now at Christ's, and to ask for your support towards our current fundraising priorities.

This year's Campaign is directed towards our Student Support Initiative, which is designed to answer two of the pillars of our Campaign for Christ's: 'Attracting the Best', and 'Enhancing College Life'. Gifts to this initiative help us to continue encouraging applications from a diverse range of outstanding graduates and undergraduates, regardless of their backgrounds, and supporting them during their time at Christ's- not only academically and in their extracurricular activities, but by ensuring student wellbeing.

The money raised during calling will be used to fund our bursaries scheme, and is essential for us to continue providing, and even expand, our current level of support; so that more students can thrive at Christ's without the burden of financial worries.
